What we've learned from this presidential campaign

Things I have learned during this campaign season (Via Daily Kos):

  1. In a race that includes a former First Lady of the United States and a multimillionaire Republican senator rumored to share up to eight residences with his wife, the black guy from Chicago is unforgivably elitist.
  2. Racism in America is caused primarily by black Chicago preachers.
  3. The guy who keeps getting confused over the relationship between Iraq, Iran, and al Qaeda is the foreign policy expert.
  4. The guy who goes to campaign stops on his wife’s private jet aircraft is the most down-to-earth.
  5. The guy who changed his stance on tax cuts, Roe v. Wade, immigration, gun control, the confederate flag, torture, public financing, and his own anti-earmark rhetoric is the “straight talker”.
  6. People in the heartland don’t like it when you call them bitter, but they do like it when you explain to them that they’re too dumb to understand issues more important than whether or not they like to be called bitter.
  7. Arugula is the measure of a man.
  8. Bowling is the measure of a man.
  9. Orange juice is the measure of a man.
  10. Flag pins are the measure of a man.
  11. Success in Iraq consists of any reduction in violence, except when violence increases that’s good too.
  12. A recession is only a recession if you call it one.
  13. Bill Kristol, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Karl Rove, Maureen Dowd, David Brooks, David Broder, Charles Krauthammer and Bob Novak are all intensely interested in giving advice to the Democratic candidates because they just want to be helpful.
  14. There are people in this world dumb enough to believe every one of these things.
